We are bringing HOTS to HERPS New Orleans!

Below are the rules that every vendor and customer must abide by. Disregard of these rules will have you escorted out of the building with no refund. Please follow these guidelines at all times.

All vendors and customers must sign our waiver releasing NightGlow Reptiles LLC, Houston Exotic Reptile and Pet Shows – HERPS, and The Alario Center, and Jefferson Parish from all liability regarding bites, injuries, escaped animals, legal actions, legal fees, and accidents. There are no exceptions. Please select the Vendor Liability form for vendors, and the HERPS Venomous Liability Waiver for customers. Please print, sign, date, and bring with you to the show. We have Customer Liability waivers at the entrance before purchasing tickets. 

 

*All vendors selling venomous or large constrictors must fill out and return the following Restricted Snake permit to Jeff Boundy at jboundy@wlf.la.gov

 

All vendors will have to show proper permits before being allowed to set up. 

At no time will any venomous animals be allowed to be removed from their enclosure. All display enclosure must have visible locking mechanisms, and all deli cups must be secured using RED tape and marked “Venomous Reptile”. We will have a room set aside for vendors that need to clean, sex, remove the animal, etc. Snakes must be tubed for sexing, and an experienced HERPS staff member will be on hand. 

All vendors are responsible for their animals. We will have several people there that will assist with a walk through the morning before the show opens, and before any other vendors are allowed in. We ask that venomous vendors arrive 30 minutes prior to our normal vendor load in and set up times.

Each vendor is responsible for asking for proper ID, experience of the potential buyer, and should make the decision whether or not to sell to any individual. HERPS will side with the vendor at all times in this matter. 

Absolutely no venomous animal will be allowed to be carried in or out of the show in a snake bag or deli cup with no tape. No buyers will be allowed to carry the animal(s) around the expo floor. Once a sale is made, the vendor will hold the animal until the buyer is ready to leave the premises. At that time, a security member will escort the buyer out of the building and release the animal to the buyer. 

Sales outside of the building will not be tolerated. Animals will not be allowed to be taken outside to be shown to potential buyers, and both the buyer and the vendor will be escorted off of the premises if this takes place. 

No venomoids or altered animals will be allowed to be sold or displayed at the show. You will be asked to leave the premises and will be offered no refund.

At no time during the show will a venomous vendor’s table be left unattended. You must make sure you have adequate staff to have your table covered at all times

Absolutely no venomous animals may be brought into the expo by attendees. You may not have venomous animals delivered to the show if you are a vendor. You both will be asked to leave. 

Venomous animals must be displayed in a manner so that they cannot be accidentally dropped or picked up off of the table. Each vendor is responsible for netting if they choose to use it, but it is not required. 

No animals can be sold that violate local, county, state, or federal laws. You are responsible for knowing these laws. If there is a discrepancy, HERPS reserves the right to have the vendor remove the animal from the premises.
